"Lands End" Is a clothing retailer in the US.
FWIW Viagra was an accident. It was originally developed as a treatment for hypertension.
Litigation is somewhat of an issue when dealing with Apple's hardware/software and reverse engineering.
Reverse engineering is legal in the US. Any information gleaned from such activities that doesn't violate a patent, an NDA, or copyright / DMCA can be publicly disclosed with impunity. Reverse engineering for the purposes of interoperability is also well supported by prior case law.
You don't have to imagine. Take a look at his hosting on Nova Science Now. That's essentially what the new program will be like.
My understanding is that cochineal is more commonly used in countries where certain synthetic reds are banned due to concerns about toxicity, allergies, or carcinogenic properties. Fortunately, profit is more important than public safety in the US so we get to eat the cheapest option.
It doesn't matter how extensively Google uses user data internally. Almost none of their users are paying for the services they use. Bloomberg subscribers, on the other hand, are paying a pretty penny for each terminal. A degree of privacy is a reasonable expectation.
You forgot the all important email contacts scraper and spam generator.
Reminds me about a short story I once read about a future in which fast food workers are micromanaged by a computer giving them constant instruction on their minute to minute tasks through a headset.
So big media copyright holders want to have it both ways then. They get to apply federal law to extend the copyright term beyond 56 (28+28) years and then they get to claim that those same grandfathered pre-1976 works are not subject to federal DMCA provisions.
If federal law shouldn't apply then we should strip all post-1976 federal provisions from the copyright of older works. From Wikipedia here are the federal laws that would be nullified:
Copyright Act of 1976 - extended term to either 75 years or life of author plus 50 years; extended federal copyright to unpublished works; preempted state copyright laws; codified much copyright doctrine that had originated in case law
Berne Convention Implementation Act of 1988 - established copyrights of U.S. works in Berne Convention countries
Copyright Renewal Act of 1992 - removed the requirement for renewal
Uruguay Round Agreements Act (URAA) of 1994 - restored U.S. copyright for certain foreign works
Copyright Term Extension Act of 1998 - extended terms to 95/120 years or life plus 70 years
Digital Millennium Copyright Act of 1998 - criminalized some cases of copyright infringement
After stripping away these provisions a work created before 1976 with one renewal would have a copyright term of 28+28 years rather than the silly 95 years we have today.
Unfortunately, my bank's, broker's, credit union's etc
Then use NoScript and temporarily allow those sites when you need to use them. Or just permanently whitelist them since your are screwed anyway if your banking sites have been compromised with malware.
No what Agile means is "we're too lazy to develop specifications before development and we're too lazy to document the behavior when we make a release because we're already working on the next sprint".
The "robot" part is pretty redundant. Its behavior could be easily matched with a non-anthropomorphic machine. It could be made even simpler, faster, and more reliable by replacing the reciprocating elbow with a rotary disc sporting multiple peeling tools.
The number of devices from which a user accesses the service.
So does Twitter just publicly disclose a simple device count or the detailed information on all devices? If the latter, isn't that a whopping security hole to be exploited by people looking for targets with known vulnerable devices.
You can't get the full current out of the power supply without going through a negotiation phase. If that doesn't happen the interface defaults to normal current limit of 0.5A. The same thing happens today with the USB 2.0 charging ports capable of delivering up to 2.1A.
You can telnet into a JetDirect card to control it without the fancy web interface. Bonus if you make an application to simplify the process.
